Methadone Hypotension Causes and Reviews


You've probably heard that high blood pressure is a problem. Sometimes blood pressure that is too low can also cause problems.

Blood pressure is the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your arteries. Each time your heart beats, it pumps out blood into the arteries. Your blood pressure is highest when your heart beats, pumping the blood. This is called systolic pressure. When your heart is at rest, between beats, your blood pressure falls. This is the diastolic pressure. Your blood pressure reading uses these two numbers. Usually they're written one above or before the other, such as 120/80. If your blood pressure reading is 90/60 or lower, you have low blood pressure.

Some people have low blood pressure all the time. They have no symptoms and their low readings are normal for them. In other people, blood pressure drops below normal because of a medical condition or certain medicines. Some people may have symptoms of low blood pressure when standing up too quickly. Low blood pressure is a problem only if it causes dizziness, fainting or in extreme cases, shock.

Methodone Side Effects, I have had many trips to Emergency Unit at my Town, having tight painful heart problems. But when they do the Tests for Heart attacks, I jave always been told I have no problem my heart is fine. I have had ECG Tests, all fine. The only thing I can put it to ie: 250 milligrams of Methodone Tablet for Chronic Pain at the highest point was 50 x 5mg Tablest per day. I have had my leg amputated which I had the medication for. Can you confirm what I should be asking my GP, and what literature orResearch papers I can refer to. Thank you Geoff perry
